69% of adults have lost at least one tooth.
50 million Americans have lost all of their teeth.
These statistics may sound startling, but they’re true. Here’s another fact: if a missing tooth isn’t replaced, up to 20% of neighboring teeth will be lost in the next 4 to 8 years.
Dr. Roberto Monteagudo of WisconsinSmiles in West Allis offers a permanent solution to solve the problems caused by missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures. With dental implants, he restores incomplete smiles – and changes lives! The structure of an implant is copied straight from Nature, so you get a strong, secure, and stable solution for a smile designed to last a lifetime.
How do dental implants work?
A tiny, surgical-grade titanium post replaces a missing tooth root. Your jawbone forms a strong bond with the post and considers it a natural part of your smile. One or more replacement teeth anchored atop a single post or a few implant posts look natural and stay securely in place.
Why choose dental implants?
Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. You’ll be so busy enjoying your new smile that you just may forget you have implants! No more passing up the foods you love because eating is uncomfortable. With implants, you can eat what you want without fear of pain or denture slippage. Existing teeth stay in their proper position, which supports jaw joint health and preserves bite alignment. Plus, dental implants stop the gum tissue shrinkage and jawbone loss that occurs when you lose teeth. The implant post stimulates the bone tissue to prevent atrophy. No other replacement tooth alternative offers this benefit.
